Ryan did an amazing job with our dog. His first visit when leaving the dog bite his leg and a small bite and tore his pants. The last visit her tail was wagging. She's a different dog but you must follow his advice and be consistent with the training. Thank you Ryan for all you did for Luna.

Fantastic! Hattie really cared for my cat during his lion's cut - she was very patient with my quite anxious animal and handled herself professionally even when he had a little freakout due to the bath! Best lion's cut my cat has received!

I have a Labradoodle and two cats. Sarah has groomed my dog and cut my cats' nails for about the past 21/2 years. She has done an outstanding job. Prior to using Sarah, my dog was very agitated when I brought her to be groomed and was extremely upset when I would pick her up. Additionally, I was never very happy with how the dog looked. In contrast, my dog is always thrilled to see Sarah and is calm and happy when I pick her up. She also looks fabulous. Since Sarah has been grooming my dog, people have stopped me on the street to comment on how beautiful my dog is! Sarah is equally professional and gentle with my cats. It is very obvious that Sarah is a very talented groomer. Most importantly however, is that she clearly is an animal lover and advocate. She genuinely enjoys her time with each pet and "sees" them. She does not rush her work. I enthusiastically recommended Sarah.

Jody was (and still is) a tremendous help! She came prepared with lots of great ideas and information, all of which were extremely helpful. I especially appreciated her advice on making mealtime a fun and educational experience. He has really taken to the games/toys to get his food, rather than gulping it down in 5 seconds. With her guidance, we have registered our puppy for his first kindergarten class. He is off to a great start! We are taking advantage of Jody's new service, in-home puppy sitting. We had hoped to take a vacation this summer, but with a new puppy it did not seem possible. Jody has a great service in which she will stay with your little one, in your home, and continue to work with them. No need for boarding! I am happy to recommend Jody to anyone looking for a wonderful trainer, who obviously loves puppies. I have already given her information to two friends with new puppies.

We had to go out of town and were stressing over leaving our babies. We have 2 dogs 3 cats and a water dragon. Nikki went above and beyond of what we asked her to do for a babies, we were very impressed with her professionalism. She walked our dogs daily, fed them bathed them and trimmed their nails. Our 3 kitties got a lot of love nails trimmed and their boxes cleaned. The water dragon got fed and let out to roam every day, plus his cage cleaned. I would highly recommend Nikki to everyone I know. If you are looking for a professional, reliable, caring Animal lover, Nikki is your GAL.. Your pets needs will always come first!!

Canine Dominion is a great company to work with. The owner came to my home and picked up both of my dogs and dropped them off once boarding was completed, which was a awesome feature. During there stay with Canine Dominion, my dogs were trained on basic commands and were well taken care of. The owner even sent pictures of my dogs to keep me updated during there boarding, which made me feel even more comfortable. It was truly a pleasure working with the owner Jauvaurie and I will definitely board my dogs with him again.

Kim is very professional and sweet, she took care of my kitty cat and chinchilla while we were away for our wedding. I have an incredibly needy cat but he wasn't super desperate when we got home so I could tell he had enough attention. We then used Kim to check on the house and chinchilla while away for our honeymoon. I usually worry a lot about my animals and can get a bit anxious but she was very understanding and I felt relieved to have her with them. I left my cat at a friend's house for our honeymoon but I think if we go on another long trip I will just ask Kim to come back. She has even brought in packages for us and made an extra stop to turn off my ridiculous house alarm so the beeping noise wouldn't bother my chinchilla. Highly recommend. (Oh and she is one of the only pet sitters we have had who isn't scared of the chinchilla. I can tell she is a real animal lover)

Fabiola was very quick to respond to my request and within one day she was at my apartment meeting my two kitties. She is clearly an animal lover and my cats instantly warmed up to her! Two days later she was coming over daily to feed them while I was on vacation. She was so flexible (a few days my boyfriend was supposed to feed the cats but had an unexpected emergency and Fabiola responded right away and went over to take care of my cats). She followed up with me throughout the week and sent some photos and even went to get more cat food when I was running low. She cleaned their litter every day and it was so nice to come home to a fresh smelling apartment! I would highly recommend her to anyone and plan on using her in the future! Thanks Fabiola for making me feel comfortable leaving my fur babies with you!

I am exceptionally pleased that I chose Jenny to dog sit for me. I have a shy dog, and Jenny took the time to introduce herself to my pup to make sure they were comfortable with each other. She sent text updates and pictures so I wouldn't worry while I was away, and also wrote out detailed descriptions of every visit. It's obvious that Jenny loves animals (especially with her background in animal rescue), and I would not hesitate to use her services again or recommend her to a friend.

I recently had my dog participate in the basic obedience class. Bijou is a rhodesian ridgeback and I adopted her 3 months ago and she was 1 year old. I quickly learned that Bijou was extremely smart but very stubborn. She would only listen to my commands if I had a treat and would basically pull my arm off on walks. Bijou was also house trained but because of her stubbornness she would have "accidents" in the house every single day not matter how often we took her out to go to the bathroom. In addition, Bijou got attacked by 3 dogs at a dog park and it changed her personality from playful to scared and she would get nasty every time she saw another dog out of her fear of being attacked. After day 1 of training Bijou was completely different. She was listening to all of my commands and it was obvious her confidence was coming back. After the 2nd training session Bijou stopped having "accidents" in the house and started going to the bathroom on command outside when I asked her to. Using the instructors approach to training we've been able to teach Bijou endless tricks and quickly. It's been a pleasure being able to take her on runs in the city off leash (and she'll stay right next to me even with other dogs around) and eat at resturants outside and not have her freak out. The best part is she plays so nicely with dogs again, and we were able to take her back to "A Dogs Day Out" because she plays so well again and it's due to having her confidence back. My sister stayed with me the past weekend and brought her dog Huck, a golden doodle, and everything was so peaceful in the house and they played so nicely outside together. One of the biggest compliments is when we are eating outside in the city and people stop in Aw of Bijou’s obedience and we get asked by complete strangers where she was trained and wish their dog was as well behaved. I think Nick's training is so effective because he discovered a way to communicate to dogs that fills that gap and better connects dogs with their owners. My sister was so impressed by Bijous improvement in obedience when she visited with her dog that she is now driving all the way from North Carolina to get Nicks training. My sister has completed 3 other dog training courses with little results. The best part is Nick guarantees results, and it's because he has a 100% success rate. Because Bijou is so obedient I’m excited to take her to more places and on more adventures like camping in the Boundary Waters, I know she’ll stay where I tell her to in the canoe and will stay close to me on the trails. It’s so great being able to take my dog out with me vs. leaving her at home because I know she’ll behave. Thank you for all of your help Nick, you've truely improved Bijou and my quality of life!

Mr. Haywood and his dog trainers could not be any nicer. Our Wheaten Terrier is much smarter then we thought she was and is listening to us better then we could have imagined. We have also continued to use their services for boarding when we are away. We have been super happy with the results and on going work.

I boarded my furry baby with Annia. I must say that I was extremely pleased with her services. She went above and beyond to ensure I was comfortable leaving him while I vacationed as this was his first time boarding. While my pup was on her care she was constantly updating me with messages, pictures and videos of how much fun he was having with Simon😊. After picking him up my pup spent the entire day and I really mean the entire day sleeping. That only tells me how much fun he had while at Simonsez. I'm very please, I will be a return customer and I highly recommend Simonsez services.
